We chose to eat here as we were in town having a few drinks with friends. We had previously eaten at the Huntly Hotel across the square, and it was HORRENDOUS, so we thought we'd give the Gordon Arms a try.
Walking inside, it was like being in The Shining! Ancient decor, tables, wallpaper. The Gents was stunningly decorated with avocado urinals, sinks and toilets!
The menu was surprisingly good in terms of choice, but expensive for the surroundings. I had 'stuffed fillet of pork', to which I thought at nearly £16 would be a good eat. It wasn't. Tasted fine, but I literally got three small thin slices! Oh and a handful of boiled spinach. Mmm... tasty!
The staff were efficient but never broke a smile or made any attempt at conversation. In case your reading this, that's why you never got a tip. SORRY!
Overall, I wouldn't rate it as bad as a 2, but I'm struggling to give it a 3! Best choice if you can't make it out to the Castle Hotel.
